MSCI has appointed Jeremy Ulan as head of investor relations and treasury, effective immediately.
Ulan joined the global index provider in 2010, most recently serving as managing director on the strategy and corporate development team, where he spent eight years working closely with senior leaders to support the firm’s growth strategy, according to a statement from the company announcing his appointment.
The role also saw Ulan lead M&A and partnership activities, says MSCI, working on the ‘recent strategic acquisitions’ of Real Capital Analytics and Carbon Delta, as well as a minority investment in The Burgiss Group.
Before his move to strategy and corporate development, Ulan – who holds a BA in economics from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut and began his career in wealth management at Morgan Stanley – helped to build out MSCI’s planning and forecasting processes, in addition to helping oversee all aspects of MSCI’s capital structure, according to the firm.
‘During his tenure at MSCI, Jeremy has gained extensive company knowledge and insight, which, combined with his deep financial skills, knowledge of our industry and extensive network, puts him in a unique position to drive enormous value in this role,’ says Andrew Wiechmann, MSCI CFO, in the company statement.
‘I look forward to watching him expand and enrich the investment community’s understanding of the MSCI story, drive a deeper understanding of our unique financial model and strategic opportunity, and continue to optimize our capital structure.’
